My new book Daggers Drawn is nearly finished. Here you can see a rough sketch of the cover. More to come!
ALERT! New SUPER addition to The Kickstarter Campaign for Daggers Drawn!
In 2001 I created this classic Super Bowl cartoon modelled on my father, who was a dedicated and highly animated armchair football fan.
To celebrate the Baltimore Ravens return to the Super Bowl (my Dad’s favorite team), I have added a print of this cartoon as a new reward for Kickstarter supporters. The framable print will be 9×12 and hand-signed by the artist. Though this will be a special gift to any Ravens Fan, it will also bring a smile to the face of any sports enthusiast.
You can go to THE KICKSTARTER PROJECT PAGE to order. $30 for the Super Bowl Print or $50 for the New Kal book Daggers Drawn and a Print.
For all other supporters… you can increase your pledge amount by increments of $30 and order extra prints.
Thanks for supporting Daggers Drawn… spread the word!1 comment

On Tuesday March 6, 1-2PM I will be on Washington’s NPR station, WAMU (88.5FM) with the great Kojo Nnamdi. According to the station’s website, we will be discussing satire, politics and the hi-tech future of editorial cartoons.
I cannot wait to hear what I have to say! If you cannot listen live, you will be able to listen on the web during or after the show here.No comments

A few days ago, the great cartoonist, writer, colleague and friend Jerry Robinson passed away.
There have been glowing obituaries in the New York Times and elsewhere celebrating his virtues.
He had many.
He is best known by cartoon enthusiasts as an early contributor (as a teenager) to the Batman comics, most notably for his role in creating”The Joker”.
Others know Jerry for his tireless campaigning on behalf of the early creators of the Superman comics, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster who had sold their rights to the character in 1930 for $130. Largely thanks to Jerry
A long legal fight resulted in a settlement with Warner Communications, DC Comics‚Äô corporate parent, providing the pair with annual payments for the rest of their lives and provisions for their heirs.
I knew Jerry in a different way.
I knew him as an energetic and outgoing friend bristling with compassion, curiosity and ¬†generosity. He was a great mentor to me in my early career and I will be forever grateful for the time and advice he shared.
I feel incredibly lucky that Jerry’s and my paths crossed…and that we were able to amble alongside each other for so many years.No comments
